NetMotion Software is a privately held software company specializing in mobile performance management, a term which blends "app performance, network performance, server performance and API performance" and seeks to optimize the time to render an image and, subsequently, turnaround time from when an end-user submits a request until a response is received.[3][4]


The company is a spinoff that has adapted as its ownership and the market for its services has changed.


The company is headquartered in Seattle, Washington. Three sales offices in Europe handle international sales.[15]

NetMotion maintains partnerships with major telecom service providers, and technology alliances with hardware and software providers and channel partners.[16]


NetMotion products are built on an architecture it terms software-defined mobility.[17] Fundamentally, it consists of client software on each mobile device, which communicates with a control server in the cloud or data center that pushes policies and actions to the client for execution.[18] Through this architecture that gives administrators control of the endpoints, they can manage application delivery based on changing network conditions through software, regardless of the combination of networks used,[17] including cellular and Wi-Fi networks that are outside of their direct administrative control.[18]

An enhanced filtering feature named Aware was added in 2019.[19]
